Subject: Explanation of How Heat Flows
Uses quite a few experiments which are well explained in terms of how they demonstrate the physical properties of heat.

Another gem that makes Mr Wizard look amateur. A common thread in this series is that they are very well organized which adds so much to the clarity of what they are discussing.

Wish they had shown us this somewhere in the 7th - 9th grade.

Subject: Goooooooodbye Earl!
The weakest SIA in the series in my opinion, but still has it's moments. I liked the endless endless experiments in this one, and since I havent commented on it before, the way Dr Earl folds his harm over his waist while holding the other one whose hand is on Dr Earl's chin (you'll know what I mean). The Animal of the week is of all things, a GOPHER. Some little tyke comes on and doesnt say much, and neither does Dr Earl really. Slightly bizarre moment comes when he shows the dead stiff gophers in front of the real thing.
